Hi there. I just got this last night, and I love it! The multitude of options is great.

However I must ask one thing. When I put my mounts into the action bars, they are not greyed out when I am in combat/indoors. This sometimes makes it hard to judge when I can or can't use them. Is there a way to fix this? Or am I simply to wait for an update?

Thanks

EDIT: Oh, also, I use this addon along with SexyMap. The little minimap icon for Ion bugs out a lot with the minimap, and often hides behind the minimap. With the way my minimap is set up, it oftentimes is completely hidden because of this. Just thought I'd let you know.

I have downloaded the updated Ion and applicable "other files" (Menu Bar, Bag Bar, Pet Bar and Status Bars) since 5.4.1 was released.

It appears that the Menu Bar taint message experienced initially after 5.4.1 release is fixed in the updated files.

As far as not seeing a menu load in certain cases, it seems to have been there a while from previous posts.

There is a bit of a work around for this:
Left-click on the red Ion button on the mini map.
At this point you will enter "bar configuration mode".
You can then right-click on any of the Ion bars to open up a general menu.

Note:
There is a separate recent post that still applies to resolving the per-character Ion configurations that you will still need to perform in the recent updates.

If you have any troubles past this point, drop a note and myself or other users here will do our best to help.

- Even with the odd bug this action bar mod is my best chance to enjoy my wow addiction.

Taint Issues

5.4.1 BLizzard has added a call to the secure function C_StorePublic.IsDisabledByParentalControls() into their UpdateMicroButtons() function, which ION-MenuBar calls which is why we are seeing taint errors from ION and possibly other addons.

Per Character Layouts

Since I'm sharing setup tips here is how to set up per character settings, from way back in the past of the comment pages.

Warning this requires some small modifications of the Ion.toc file. For reference when I refer to <wow directory>, I mean where ever you have installed wow. In my case it is c:\WOW, but it will vary depending on where you installed it.

Step 1: make a copy of the <wow directory>\WTF folders. This is if something goes wrong you can restore your previous settings.
Step 2: in a text editor open the <wow directory>\Interface\AddOns\Ion\Ion.toc file.
Step 3: change lines 7 & 8 from
## SavedVariables: IonGDB, IonItemCache
## SavedVariablesPerCharacter: IonCDB, IonSpec
to be
## SavedVariables: IonGDB, IonItemCache
## SavedVariablesPerCharacter: IonCDB, IonSpec, IonGDB,
and save the file.
Step 4: Start WOW and then log in to every character that you currently have bars set up for. This will save the current layout to that character and keep you from having to recreate the bars layouts from scratch for them.
Step 5: Quit WOW completely
Step 6: in a text editor open the <wow directory>\Interface\AddOns\Ion\Ion.toc file.
Step 7: change line 7 from
## SavedVariables: IonGDB, IonItemCache
to be
## SavedVariables: IonItemCache
Step 8: Restart Wow

Now any changes you make to layout & keybinds will only be for the character they were made on. If you did step 4 every character that you logged in should have the same layout as before, but any new character will be prompted to make new bars. If you want to use the same layout from another character for a new character just copy the Ion.lua file from the old characters' SavedVariables folder to the new characers' folder. You will have to redo the button's but the bar layout will be the same.

Looking back at your screen shot a few posts earlier I just noticed that you only had "Bar" listed when you did "/ion create", while mine had "bar, menu, pet, bag". Going back I disabled the other files and relogged, and when I did the Extra Action button was gone.

It appears that you need to have the "Ion: Pet Bar" installed and active for the Extra Action button to display.

Try it installing the Pet Bar files and see if the bar appears.

My whole issue is to avoid having that big clunky bar enabled as it works fine when i have blizzard bar on but I am trying to avoid that.
Nope, no default bilzzard bar for me.
Here is my screen shot of the Klaxxi "Master of Puppets" special ability

The patch note are only refering to the default Extra Action button, not the Ion one.

Was using hydro 6 but pt it down to match yours

I am typing /ion create extrabar (Is that the exact correct format)

Edit # 1 - is there some form of additional ion plug in you are using ? I just added in the menu bar addon ant that updated it so now I can create and have a menubar... but no extra action bars, there is a pet one should I try that see if that has it on there ?

And I can confirm that in my version or whatever it seems like the extra action button with Ion is linked to the blizzard bar I even tried another addon but it only seems to show once i do an /ion blizzbar followed by a ui reload, after that if i turn off the blizzbar it goes away and have to do it all over again lol

Thanks for trying to help me!
The extrabar command is not listed a listed command, but it should still work. I assume that it was not ever added to the help text, like it is not added to the config window.

Also could you check and list which version you are using[/quote]

#1 edit - Tried downgrading to your version same thing. And when I type /ion bartypes or whatever doesn't list anything other than action bar...

Edit #1 - are you using a different verison than the one listed there I have latest seems like no option for extrabar


Edit #2 - yours looks different on the buttons etc, looks like it's an older one ?
I'm believe that I'm using the most latest version of Ion, I'll double check when I get home.. The screenshot I used was from the screen library from the main page and is an older version. I used it just to illustrate where the new bar name would show up.

There is no way to create the Extra Action Bar from the config window, only from the command prompt via the slash command given earlier.

I just looked at my backup folder on Dropbox and I'm using the Hydrogen-5 version. The screenshot I used was from the screen library from the main page and is an older version. I used it just to illustrate where the new bar name would show up.

Thanks
The name if the bar is irrelevant but type of bar does. The command creates an the extra action bar which is a special type of bar that only has one button available to it. Double check that the Extra Action bar is not showing up in the list of bars. When you create it, is does not have any buttons, so it is hard to see , and can be easily missed.

Doing the steps on a standard action bar will not result in the extra action button appearing.


Shows list where the new bar would show up.
